5/7 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

I exited my shares position on SPXU based on the Fisher Transform but retained my options-based bear position on SPY based on Elliott wave analysis.

5/7 – 1:30 p.m. New York time

I’ve updated my SPXU Analysis with results.

5/7 – 10:20 a.m. New York time

I have exited my shares position on SPXU for a loss, based on the Fisher Transform remaining in an uptrending posture. SPXU profits in a downtrend in the S&P 500. (See Friday’s Live post for a discussion.)

The chart this morning remains consistent with my analysis and I plan no action this morning on my bear positions on SPY using options. (See Thursday’s Live post for a chart discussion.)
